Re: Nursing while PG?

I stopped nursing while pregnant, twice. I was still nursing Aidan when I got pg with Kieran. Aidan weaned at 12mo, pretty much on his own. I was still nursing Torrin when I got pg with Eliana and he weaned at about 19-20mo on his own.. both of them nursed through about half of my pregnancy.

BTW, nursing while pg won't produce smaller babies.. however, it can produce longer pregnancies. My midwives told me that almost every mom they have that nurses during pregnancy goes longer than she would were she not. My daughter was born on her due date (well, on her u/s due date..) but would have likely been born at 38-39wks had I not been nursing. (I tend to go early.)
